3:01am
says the president's my way or the highway approach is getting us nowhere. >> the feds are borrowing nearly a billion dollars a day. so why is the white house saying reducing our debt not really the goal? >> thank you, eric, it's the most watched video on the internet of all time. he is set to perform for the president. gangnam style said about our soldiers a few years ago. that controversy kicking up this morning. "fox & friends" hour one begins right now. >> get out the coffee. wake up, everyone, thank you so much for waking up with tus, it is "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. dave bowling in for dave briggs. >> come in and do the show with us today. more filling in today than the regulars. we are glad to be on with you clayton. >> you are on an interesting morning because congress now
3:02am
just 23 days left, 23 days until we head off that flif. fiscal cliff. if you listened to speaker boehner yesterday he is reading reports that the president is trying to slow walk this thing. listen to the speaker. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wasted another week. >> there are a lot of things that are possible to put the rev that the president seeks on the table, but nope of it is going to be possible. the president insists on his position. insists on my way or the highway. that's not the way to get to an agreement that i think is important for the american people and very important for our economy. >> there you go. so that's what speaker boehner's office is saying. they had a phone call on thursday. but people wondering if they are not even talking at all anymore. >> he said this is no way to
3:03am
an agreement there should be compromise. if you are elected official you should represent all of the united states and you should compromise and hear both sides. >> i think you should go off the fiscal cliff. americans are barreling down the road that's debt. there is a fork in the road. on the left are all our kids and our grand kids and the next generations. and on the right the road on the right is the fiscal cliff. really that the is choice if we don't do something about it we are going to go anyway. do you run over the kids with the car or do you take the other road which is not a good one but better than running over your kids fiscal cliff. it's a hard choice. >> but if we don't do it, if we don't go over the fiscal cliff the democrats will never cut a dime in spending. >> why would the democrats want change? if the bush tax cuts are going to expire they are saying this is great because this means the rich are going to pay more money, we are going to have more money to spend. they are already spending a the lo. they are saying why would we want change? this is great we have more
3:04am
money to spend. >> nancy pelosi saying why aren't we voting on middle class tax cuts? get to the other stuff. put this up for a vote: listen to nancy pelosi. we are not here to pass the middle income tax cut why are we here to not deat a time the middle income tax cut. could it be that the republicans are holding the middle income tax cuts as they have all along hostage to tax cuts for the wealthy? >> can i give another analogy? do you mind? it's just crazy, the former speaker of the houses the republicans are holding the middle class hostage. the two sides that come to the bargaining table may want to come to spending cuts on tax increases. think of it you are selling a house. you want to sell your house, the buyer comes in and you say i think my house is worth 400,000 bucks but the other side comes in and says i'm starting at zero. that's what the democrats brought. that's what the president brought to the table. he he said $1.6 trillion in
3:05am
tax increases and no spending cuts. >> that's a great point. you know why? because what the republicans did was that paperwork. they got all their ducks in a row. got cantor's tax revenue. paul ryan $800 billion. paul ryan and eric cantor who eric cantor before said he wouldn't sign $800 billion in revenue. he got those signatures. that was the deal they handed to the white house. the white house says that's not a god. meanwhile that's where the white house was a few years ago. $800 billion is where the white house was a few years ago. enough to we know spending is what the republicans want under controlling and borrowing. look at this new cbo report this morning. the feds are borrowing $4.8 billion a day. so far for the next year, for fiscal year 2013. but the jay carney, listen to the white house press secretary says, look, the whole thing here is not about deficit reduction, listen.
3:06am
>> deficit reduction in and of itself is not the goal here. the reason to get our fiscal house in order. the reason to pass a deficit reduction package that is balanced and allows for economic growth and job creation is to put our economy on a sustainable fiscal path, which, then itself produces positive economic benefits and growth and jobs. >> okay. so here's the problem with that jay carney speaking for the president. speaking for the president, president obama, think back a couple years ago, in fact, it was october of 2008 when he was senator obama wanting to be president obama. he was concerned about the deficit and the debt. listen to what he had to say back then. >> the problem is the way bush has done it over the last 8 years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt
3:07am
from $5 trillion from the first 42 presidents, number 43 ed a $4 trillion by his lonesome so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we're going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> so, unpatriotic. >> the hypocrite in chief says in 2008 that 5 from is unpatriotic but now we're up to $16.4 trillion. that's okay. by the way we move my credit card limits. he doesn't want a debt ceiling going forward. >> debt ceiling no more can congress deal when the president says we're going to raise the debt ceiling. no squabbles back and forth. >> let me get this straight. borrow $4.8 billion a day and now we're coming to the edge ever the fiscal cliff. republicans are saying hey,
3:08am
let's continue the bush tax cuts, let's make this fair for everyone but let's stop spending. we are spending more than we have. democrats are saying now they are saying it doesn't matter, we are not focused on the deficit anymore. we want to keep spending so we're going to raise taxes. >> don't touch spending. if you touch spending do it five or 10 years down the road. let another congress do it. in the meantime raise revenues through tax increases. >> i hear my father's voice. we all grew up with our dads that they saved every penny they had. they came from that generation. my dad would never say ainsley just spend, spend, spend on your credit cards. don't worry about the debt? don't save a dime. if you were running a business your business would have been out of business. >> that's what scary. we love america so much and people are concerned where our country is going. >> email your questions at friends at foxandfriends.com. >> headlines. might be the biggest arrest related to terror attack in

3:20am
to worry about is him losing control of those weapons. terrorists or iran. terrorists worried about. but no matter what, we have got to maintain positivelike on where those things are at. >> lt. colonel tony shaffer, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> do you use a credit card? well, if we go over the fiscal cliff, your personal account could be in trouble. frightening site at balloon festival when fireworks go shooting out into the crowd and out of control.

3:39am
"sports illustrated" editor and writer. i want to talk about that game. you point out it's the last college football game of the season. only game played on this saturday. why is that important? >> that's important because this game was tremendously important in the landscape of college football for more than half of the 20th century and it's still something that everybody in the college football world looks forward to on their calendar. it's the end of the business part of college football season and the beginning of the bowl season. army-navy game in its hay day was a bowl of its own. and to the guy who play today it's certainly the same. >> interesting title. when saturday mattered most. saturday still matters though, doesn't it? >> saturday matters tremendously. the point is this was 1958 a month of a the cadets beat the midshipman 22-6 in philadelphia. johnny unites and the colts beat the giants in overtime in the greatest game ever played
3:40am
and nfl went from a seasonal side show to a national past time of its own and the money became insane and the guys who went to army in 1958 for that season, those sort of football players stopped looking at the military academy it was the beginning of the end for service academy football. >> up until that day good football players wanted to play football there. >> none of these guys thought about where they were going to play professional football. after 'a 8 after that season that all changed. >> '58 talk about that season, record? >> army went 8 will-oo-1. last one ever to go undefeated. the last ever to be ranked number one. last ever to have a heisman controversy winner which they did in pete dawkins their half back and they beat navy. they beat rice who was a very good team. >> i see a time. >> they tied pittsburgh and mike ditka who was a sophomore then. fourth or fifth game of his college career and he was a force. and army, you know, went in
3:41am
there with some injuries and got lucky and escaped with a tie. >> talk to us about the importance of the country of the army-navy football game. >> the importance of the country is especially in '58 and in the 40s when these pictures you have back here which are so nice. those teams were close to the country in a lot of ways in the sense that, you any, world war ii and the korean war were very fresh most people had served in one or both. so, you know, army-navy was not just, you know, a game by two schools had you nothing to do with. army navy was something that everybody in the country had something to do with. in addition to being two of the top teams in the country, there was also a game that was tremendously important to people for a lot of other reasons besides football. >> you point out in the book, they -- this team, the 58 team went ended up being rnked number three nationally. >> that's right. >> because they didn't want to play a championship game because it would be a distraction? >> that was one reason. the academy red blake, the
3:42am
coach was seniority of on board with that decision because he was pretty tired by the end of the year. the academic demands on on cadets they felt they did enough in the regular season and if to a bowl game take extra time which was still a month of preparation. >> mark beach thank you very much. >> $20,000 for relief concert that's happening thanks to shameless school%. how much money lted victims actually see? can they be the best and worst part of the holidays? your in-laws dr. keith ablow has your tips ahead.

>> all right. some quick headlines, the government may soon be spying on your driving. the national highway traffic safety administration is pushing automakers to include black boxes like the ones found in planes in all cars by september of 2014. the devices would know if you are speeding and if you are wearing a seat belt. that's great. after nearly 70 years at the bottom of lake michigan world war ii fighter plane be is recovered. fm 2 wild cat crashed after engine failure during training. it's now set to be restored and displayed in chicago. ainsley? >> thank you so much, eric. scalpers are raising both ticket prices and nerves after cashing in on benefit concert to help the hardest hit victims of hurricane sandy. going for 1 auto bucks for that sold out concert add madison square garden and now upwards of a $60. another listing $60,000.

any hope money made off of these scalped tickets will help those in need. jay white head welcome this morning. listen to all these numbers. even for tickets for charity.com there were not enough for you to guys to get access to these tickets. >> three points to remember here guys. remember the four trade rule for these high demand tickets, often they fall -- they go through four hands each time getting marked up before they end up in the person who sits in the seat. technology exists for it you force the person who by buys the ticket to sit in the seat they didn't use it in this case. >> should would he be upset by the fact that tickets sold out. they sold out through legitimate means quickly. we presumed that that face value ticket money will go to the victims of hurricane sandy. they are being marked up dramatically so these scalpers are making more money off of the tragedy. >> there is going to be profiteering unless you force people who buy the ticket to sit in the seat. they didn't use it in this case. but, remember, charity is hard
3:48am
in this country. we have tingts for charity. 300 points of compliance to sell tickets nationally for charity. you have got -- there are 300 different points of regulation. we spent millions of tickets for charity on compliance engine. it's extraordinary. the people who put on this concert 12-12-12 concert legitimate folks. can you rest assured that as much as the proceeds as possible will go to sandy victims. >> jay, a lot of people are saying, all right. these scalpers still initially had to buy the tickets. percentage of that money will go it these tickets. why should they go sell tickets for someone who didn't want to stand in line who wasn't able to bit tickets immediately. if someone is willing to pay millions of dollars the hurricane victims have already made money off that original purchase. >> they have. here is the point here. at the time of the disaster is wromg time to build charity in your life. tickets for charity has turned

3:55am
men loiser to in-laws are 23% more likely to stay married. >> that's great news. >> the researchers theory rise women tend to seat connectedness as intrusive meddling whereas men feel warned. >> if you are woman you shouldn't get close to in-laws and if you are a man you should? is that what you are saying. >> what i am selling you can't draw many conclusions by this particular study going off the fiscal cliff should lead to some nih funds. studying marriage and finding out that men should get closer to in-laws and women should keep their distance. what should do you with that? i will tell you what you should do with it have boundaries whether you are a man or a woman so that your nuclear family is really your focus. you don't want your wife to feel undermined and you don't want your wife to feel

congress better get its act together what we're going to do. the president says the wealthy. all target on the wealthy listen to the president. >> if we are serious about paying deficit while still investing in education and research that are important to growing our economy and if we are serious about protecting middle class families then we are going to have to ask the wettiest americans to pay higher tax rates. that's one principle i won't compromise on. >> higher tax rate, of course, at issue and whether or not as republicans had hoped they could just close loopholes and tax deductions and that could. >> he keep say the wealthiest americans but $250,000 that's not the wealthest of america. >> right. so there was some word during the campaign when joe biden let slip that $1 million would be the threshold for which they would begin to tax the wealthest americans. marco rubio on a saturday morning addressed as well. they are going after each other. senator marco rubio and
4:03am
president obama in these dueling addresses. >> we must get the national debt under control. taxes will not solve our 16 trillion-dollar debt. only economic growth and form of entitlement programs will control the debt. woe must reform the job killing tax code by getting rid of unjustified loopholes. our goals should be to generate new revenue by creating new taxpayers not new taxes. >> let's talk about that for eakd is. president obama said we have to make the wealthest americans pay more taxes to help our debt. that number happens to be, if you do the president's plan, the raising the income rates levels on the wealthest americans from 36% to 39.6%. that number comes out to about $83 billion. about 8 or 9 days worth of funding the government. so that clearly won't fix the trillion-dollar problem per year that we have. so it's a little disingenuous.
4:04am
marco rubio is right. he hit on the one world that can do something to solve the problem. growth. the only bay we bail america out without going over the fiscal cliff. the only other way is to bring growth back into the economy. 1 and a half to 2% growth will never fix the problem. we need 3, 4, or 5% growth. one more thing, ronald reagan coming out of recession had 8% growth rate. >> so the debate right now whether or not we would go back to that 39.6% tax rate on the wealthiest americans. however, there are some signs right now that it may not go as high as the clinton era tax rates on the wealthest americans. but also cuts. that's another big issue, right? not just the growth but the cuts in spending. that's what republicans want. we need to fix this debt problem. that's what marco rubio. american dream his parents obtained will go away because there won't be a country left for our young americans to inhabit. take a listen. helping people make it into
4:05am
the middle class is a personal issue for me. my parents worked in the service industry. and almost any other nation on earth their jobs would barely provide for daily living much less a better future. but in america, my parents made it to the middle class. today the journey my parents made from poor immigrants to middle class it's harder than it was in their time because the world has changed. the economy has changed. but whether or not the journey my parents made is still possible to all who are willing to work for it, that will decide whether america will decline or whether america will remain exceptional. >> the last hour i pointed this out. used that analogy of the car barreling down the road at 100 miles per hour that's american debt. really risking the future take left fork and run over your children. marco unionio talks about it will we have the that we were afforded that he was afforded
4:06am
or on the right fiscal live cliff. you will continue to take your kids out. take your families out. future out or medicine go over the cliff. >> your point about growth catch-22. they want to raise taxes on the wealthy. but the wealthy are the ones that have these small businesses or have businesses. a corporate america. but they are not hiring. they are cutting back because they know their taxes are about to increase. so you can't have growth if the tax is increased. whereas mitt romney was running on and marco rubio points this out saying if we have growth. if we don't increase taxes but we allow for more jobs, if we allow these small businesses to hire more people, then you have more people that are at ing -- paying taxes and that solves your problems. >> new jobs numbers out friday that had missing information in it. more on that come up. first with super storm sandy brought devastation to some people up and down the east coast on top of the lives that it destroyed it will cost tens

4:08am
christie thanked president obama for all this money in a statement, this pledged money and the senators from their states chuck schumer, frank lautenberg, kristen gillibrand all democrats said this $60.4 billion is a good start but they acknowledged that congress has other things on its plate and this money is not all guaranteed. some members they think might push for some spending cuts to offset all this new spending. they said, quote: this is going to be a tough fight in the congress given the fiscal cliff. some members have not been friendly to disaster relief. but the care with which the package has been put together has given us a good head start. although that head start not good enough for at least one republican member of congress frank says governor christie made a responsible request federal aid based on careful comprehensive analysis of new jersey's needs having seen the devastation firsthand in my district during his visit.

i'm disappointed president obama has come to a different conclusion. we should not short change nor add strings to the support residence, businesses and communities in my district and across the region desperately need and at least 125 people were killed by super storm sandy. right now the u.s. government saying sandy is on track to be the second or third costliest natural disaster ever behind hurricane katrina and close to hurricane andrew in 1992. clayton? >> peter doocy live from d.c. >> now for your headlines might be the biggest arrest related to that terror attack in benghazi. mohammed adual has been detained in egypt. many believe he is the leader of the new wing of al qaeda smed meanwhile secretary of state hillary clinton agreeing to testify about benghazi attack in an open hearing. house foreign relations committee chair woman ileana

4:18am
diplomatic community and intelligence community and they have all said to me why was ambassador stevens going to benghazi which is highly dangerous of all places on 9/11, knowing that the red crescent, the vatican red cross had been attacked there in may that the british ambassador had been attacked in june and two weeks before 9/11 the state department put out a travel warning to libya. so, what was so important that chris stevens had to be in benghazi and risk not only his life but the lives of other people on that day? why not that day be at the embassy in trip there? tripoli. that's what makes sense. the minute our embassy in cairo came under attack, chris stevens, other ambassadors around the world would have been notified of this. chris stevens chose to stay in benghazi, knowing that his embassy in tripoli might have come under attack as well. why didn't he leave benghazi and go back to tripoli? he is supposed to be a very very bright, very talented ambassador who knew the area.
4:19am
so this doesn't make sense to me that he remained in benghazi. >> brad for someone who has written countless military novels, this is a red flag for you? i guess when you write your novels you have to sit down with the experts and say all right, would this make sense? would this actually really happen? when you heard about this you thought i can't believe this is actually happening. is that what happened? >> absolutely. when i looked at this i reached out to people that i knew and said does this make sense to you? they said no, absolutely not. the question i keep coming book if and when hillary clinton gets finally testifies on this she needs to be asked very purposeful. very specific questions. what was stevens doing there? when did you talk to him? when did the state department let him know about the embassy in cairo being under attack? why didn't he leave? if these guys were there at the consulate in benghazi to kill him, why didn't they bring mortars there. why not shell the heck out of the consulate concrete buildings and kill them. why do you light concrete
4:20am
buildings on fire with gasoline. you north going to burn them down. but maybe they were trying to smoke them out. maybe the intent was to take chris stevens hostage and if that was the thing they wanted to do why were? were they hoping to trade him for somebody else? there is question after question after question. it comes down it to why was chris stevens risking his life and the life of other americans we lost four americans that day in benghazi. why was he there? >> interesting stuff. brad thor the author of the new book "blacklist," out now. karl rove told me brad when he worked in the white house he couldn't believe the stuff that brad knew. what sources did brad have? nice to see you, brad. >> nice to see you as well. >> nice to see you. landmark legislation in michigan that change the face of unions forever. michigan can soon be a right-to-work state. will others follow? not the only one hit by obama care. fido being forced to pay up,

4:26am
unions. not about collective bargaining. this is solely focused on their relationship. shouldn't people have the opportunity to say they want to belong or not? >> michigan could soon be a right-to-work state. will others follow? joining us now is uaw member and spokesman for the michigan freedom-to-work coalition brian penebaker. you are a line worker right now, correct? >> that's right i'm assembly worker at the sterling axle plant in sterling heights. >> tell us what your reaction is to governor snyder's willingness, desire and push to make michigan a right-to-work state? >> well, what he said is exactly true. up until now, workers in michigan, if you hire in at a shop that has union representation, you were forced to become a member of the union. but about 35 or 40% of the workers are conservatives that vote republican and they don't agree with all the union's political activities so we
4:27am
have always wanted our ability to not join the union and not be forced to pay dues. and now we are going to have that opportunity once right-to-work is signed into law. it's a great opportunity for the workers in michigan. >> very good opportunity because frankly a lot of car companies that wanted to come over and do business in america saw michigan as a place that was too expensive, too onerous with the unions so they went to other right-to-work states; is that right? >> exactly. i hired in -- actually i have worked for two of the big three domestic automakers and i hired in 1978 with chrysler corporation. and in 1979, the uaw membership reached a peek of 1.9 million members that they represented here in the midwest primarily. since then they have dropped down to below 400,000. that a lot of that is due to the labor cost that the uaw has forced on the automakers so the automakers have either relocated into southern right-to-work states or moved
4:28am
out of the midwest. we're hoping to get some of that manufacturing back into the midwest and michigan specifically. i think right-to-work will help do that. >> interesting how it works. you pointed out if you wanted to become an auto worker in the state of michigan you were required to pay dues. correct me if i am wrong, doesn't the state of michigan automatically collect the dues so the state gets involved in it? >> that's for government workers. there are two types of unions, government workers, government workers that represent government and private unions. two different things. two sets of bills moving through the legislature right now. and i would like to thank senator pat coal back and mike shureky for having the courage to write those bills and push them to this point so that they could be introduced and signed by governor snyder. they have done a great job and it's a great day, great time
4:29am

are conservative and vote republican. they really resent the liberal political activities and the support that the unions give to liberal democrat candidates. they almost exclusively donate to democrats. and a lot of the guys don't like that and they don't appreciate that. they may choose not to pay their union die dues if the unions don't change their political activities after right-to-work comes into law. >> good portion of america watching michigan right now. thank goodness it's about time that michigan gets with the times. if you want to do business in america you have to make it less onerous. make it easier and better for people to come here and do business. there are those who say the uaw that auto bailout that president obama and president bush too to a certain extent but president obama spent $80 billion is one of thingts that changed business in america for maybe permanently. >> i'm proud to work at ford motor company. we did not participate in that
4:31am
bailout. >> no, sir i understand that completely. and a hat tip to alan who didn't take bailout money. >> absolutely. >> the uaw was ingratiated to the tune of $4 billion taxpayer dollars with the chrysler, g.m. bailout. >> you are exactly right. the 40% of my co-workers who are conservative did not agree with that they felt that the market should decide whether a company survives or fails and they did not want the government bailing the auto companies out. luckily, ford didn't have to ask for a bailout and a lot of the car buyers are appreciate that and our market share hafers gone way up against then. >> got to leave it there. great guest brian. >> thank you for having me. >> no jersey shore. >> our motto around here is whatever happens happens.

4:37am
but, while the americans continue to struggle to find work. the government is continuing to grow at a clip. 73% of all jobs created last five months are government jobs. the question is, does government create jobs? well, i guess they do create jobs. >> for themselves. not necessarily the kind of private sector jobs that you would hope they would be able to create. >> imagine if that were the private sector. government doesn't create jobs. it has to get out of way in order to foss are growth. >> you know why that number is so bad. 850,000 jobs created over the last five months. 620,000 were government jobs. who pays for the government jobs in the taxpayer pays for the government jobs. the private sector who makes and creates jobs and creates income pays taxes. all that money goes into the pool to pay the government workers. that means for every one person that got a job, pulling the cart they put three people riding inside the cart.
4:38am
america can't continue on that. that will be too many people in the cart and not enough pulling the cart. >> not only is the government asking for higher taxes they are spending at a record rate and they are hiring more people. >> this is the post office problem. microcosm of that is the post office. the private sector which could do it much more officially. fedex. the post office outsources to fedex and u.p.s. burdened by the post office unions. have all sorts of problems. they are bankrupt. trying to cut back on hours, maybe saturday and yet we keep funneling more money into the post office. you are feeding something that's not working. does it make sense? >> can we point something out? 7.7% the lowest level in mane four or five years unemployment in america, 3.8% if you are a government employee. 3.8% unemployment rate. more than fully employed if you work for the government. if you don't, we have got a lot of work to do. >> that's interesting. fow for your head lynns this morning. 10s of thousands storming

clothes off right away and wash, wash off. the biggest problem is that it spreads through clothes. >> how do you know if you are affected though you are going to die as soon as you are affected been a minute and odorless, can't smell it and. >> you would have to know it's in the air. you couldn't tell by some characteristic smell. once you start with a runny nose and chest pain it progresses very very fast after that. >> almost a blessing in disguise that it just take as minute because it sounds very painful and sounds awful. >> ainsley one thing about that is if it doesn't affect you and it's not deadly the chances are that you would fully recover. that's for sure. so that is one good thing about it but, again, the dirchts here, here it would be as a terrorist threat which is a risk of fear. there, i'm really worried about the civilian population. >> dr. seagull, thanks for that information. good to see you this morning. a judge ordering this man to stop having children because he can't afford to support the nine that he already has. can this judge do that? arthur and joey are going to way. in that debate will be heated i'm sure. coming up next.

county courts really prevent someone have from having children? joining us from fair and balanced debate arthur aidala and joey jackson. i said this sounded a little bit like china. something they would impose in china, am i wrong, arthur. >> no, you are not totally wrong because they do have restri like that in china. here is the common sense call argument here. this argument is this guy is kicking out kids, boom boom boom. he doesn't pay money for any of them. they become wards of the state we all have constitutional rights, right? there are certain hurdles or restrictions on that like the second amendment and gun. everybody can't walk around carrying a gun like freedom of speech you can't run to a movie theater and yell fire. the judge isn't saying forever you can't have children. is he saying until you figure out how to take care of these nine, you can't have any other kids. >> so what's wrong with that joey? $100,000 in back taxes. >> we hold these truths to be l.

>> you just said it no matter how much -- forget about it vasectomy he can order him into jail. he is in arrears, is he in civil contempt go to jail. want to make sure is he not going to procreate, some procreation may be happening in jail but it ain't the kind where kids are coming out. [ laughter ] >> the reality is at the end of the day a person should not be impeded by the government from pursuing the things they want to do in life and to the extent. >> what if your pursuit of happiness is wrecking other people's lives? how do you think those nine kids? >> not wreck their lives because they have mothers. mothers further uted us and protect us and support us. >> six different moms. >> they do. let me just say, this thank you, guys, joey, arthur can we put up his picture on the screen again, please? >> handsome guy. >> because, ladies out there, take a look at this guy. avoid him. all right? don't become the 7th mom of this guy's kids. all right, kids. let me know how you feel about

5:07am
people. you can't negotiate in the front page of a paper. and every mayor, every governor, and every president is going to understand that you can't do that. i think one of two things. he is either the most inept chief executive when it comes to negotiating or he actually wants this thing to fall apart for political reasons. >> governor, there are some that would say john boehner's negotiating stance could be almost equally as inept as president obama's. he turned over $800 billion in spending. that's the opening offered from boehner camp? >> well, here is the thing. >> president. >> in tax increases. >> the president has to call the meeting. you can't have the speaker doing that that's the executive's job. the president hasn't had those meetings. he should be having one every day. what he should have done is to have had some quiet meetings, bring some republicans in and ask them to sponsor something. ask them to get their names on it. make something that everyone could live with you about frankly nobody would probably like and as far as what
5:08am
boehner put on the table, i think it was a good faith effort but it was rebuffed with geithner coming back saying no, 800 isn't enough. we want 1.6 trillion. >> as a conservative, where should this go? we are here obviously some tea party conservatives upset to eric's point about the way in which maybe the party is going. you have eric cantor, you have paul ryan even signing off on that $800 billion in tax increases. speaker boehner has removed somemaybe farther of the committees pulling them off. flexing some of his power saying we need to push this deal through. we need maybe to have tax increases. as a conservative does that bother you? >> it does to a point. let's face it the republicans can't get everything they want. they don't own the other two pieces of government. if they had the white house and the senate then they could get everything they want. they have one out of three. they're not going to get everything they want. what they have to recognize they have been fighting for not having the tax rates go up
5:09am
but letting the rev now go up through closing of loopholes and have reforms to change the way taxes are structured. what obama keeps insisting on is raising rates and raising it on people. for example, if you live in the silicon valley. $250,000 gives you the same lifestyle that $60,000 does in fort smith, arkansas. if you live in manhattan you have got to make $561,000 to have the same lifestyle that a person living in texas would have making $220,000. there is no accommodation for the geography and item moggography that exists when it comes to money. >> tim geithner presented the republican's plan and no spending cuts. they started at zero, feasibly. the republicans came back and boehner says we will do 800 billion in tax increases. what signal does that tell the president? it tells him he has got the
5:10am
upper hand in a lot of leeway going in his direction, does it not? >> it may not have been the greatest move on boehner's part. i think boehner honestly was trying to play a re legitimate honest broker's role saying we are not thinking we will get everything we want. we will put something on the table. what are you going to put? almost like going to the car dealer and you see the sticker price and the dealer finally says i will tell you what you can pay the sticker price plus 20% on top of that and maybe i will sell you the car but i might even put tires on it but i'm not sure until we make the deal. that's what he is doing. it's a sucker punch and just really to me indications again it's either absolute amateurish negotiating. he needs to take some lessons from william shatner or his other option is that he is just playing raw politics with, this he wants it to fail because then he thinks he can blame republicans. i'm going to tell you what he doesn't understand when the economy goes sour, he owns it,
5:11am
it's his. he can't blame george bush on this one. >> syria, dick cheney says the president doesn't care how handled poorly. he is concerned about our allies and what this looks like for the u.s. listen to this. >> source of significant grief, certainly for this city and for all americans on 9/11. faced with a very real spots specht that an area of the world that has spawned terrorists by the thousands, some who have come to the united states and killed americans are back in business. our allies no longer trust us or have confidence in us. our adversaries no longer fear us and the president to make bold statements and bold talk as he did in the last couple of days about developments in syria, but i don't think they care. >> what's your reaction, governor? >> well, he clearly is exactly right. adversaries don't fear us, allies don't trust us. and the result is the world is a much more dangerous place,
5:12am
despite obama's promise that he could talk to the muslims because he understood them obviously he doesn't. >> real quickly from a faith perspective. how should we feel about this and handle this as americans for those of us that are fearful. >> i think we ought to recognize from a faith perspective no matter how bad things get god is still bigger than anybody sitting in any office anywhere. that is kind of what gives me a sense of grounding. it's not good. but, on the other hand, you know, i'm still optimistic. i'm not the pessimist and i refuse to go there. >> speaking of faith, we're going to talk more with the governor about this. do americans know the true meaning of christmas? >> where was jesus born? >> jerusalem. >> i don't know. >> i don't know. >> jesus was born in bethlehem. >> bethlehem is in pennsylvania. >> jesus is an american? >> yes. >> luckily for those folks. >> jesus was an american. >> sticking around to help them out. >> then with the criminal sitting in the backseat you probably shouldn't leave the keys in the ignition of this.

the public employee -- is the public employee under work policy analyst for the heritage foundation joins us now. explain to us what you mean underworked? >> old stereotype. government workers work less than private sector workers. what we found was pretty good data is when you add that up offer the course of a year, government workers working about a month less. a full month less than the private sector. >> we just got some information this morning that 73% of those hired over the last five months were for government jobs. more people are being hired to work for the government but they are not working as hard? >> right. you know, one of the reasons i got into this in the first place is that in the wake of the recession you had a lot of calls from the obama
5:46am
administration to essentially bail out state and local workforces because they had suffered from layoffs but that assumes that the prior level of the workforce was accurate. that there was enough workers already workers there. >> went down to -- from 4.2 down to 3.8%. private sector unemployment is 7.7%. my twitter feed is blowing up right now because i use offed the analogy of we put three people in the cart and only hired one person to pull it. >> yeah, you know, it's important point to make about public sector exhibition in general. a the love people don't look at that job security that's involved in working for the government. it's very difficult to lose your job if you are working for the government. weave did have some layoffs in the past but nothing compared to what the private sector had. yet, whenever people want to do comparisons, you know he compare the public and the private sectors people often
5:47am
want to pretend job security doesn't exist. it really does and has a real value? what is the solution and why should americans at home care about this story? >> well, i think will take that second question first a lot of money saved here. if the public sector worked as much as private sector counterparts we would be saving we calculate $130 billion a year in labor costs with no reduction in services. because you are just having workers work more. >> jason, also a couple years ago i believe it was "u.s.a. today" that put out a study that government workers earned, on average, all in between salary and benefits substantially higher than the average private sector worker. does the hair tan foundation agree with that? >> we have done a lot of work on that ourselves. when you compare experience and apples to apples comparison what you find is particularly the fringe benefits like pensions and retiree healthcare really push the public sector over top of the private sector. it's a real problem as i said because that's money to be saved.

we don't have to pay public workers more than they would make in the private sector. it's just not fair to anyone really. >> they make more, they work less, and they are employed at a double the rate that the private sector is. sounds like a good deal to me. >> you got it. it absolutely is. >> good work if you can get it. >> thanks so much for being with us. have a great rest of your weekend. >> thank you. >> you are welcome. >> used to being on the roof top. one town is kicking him off. the controversy behind this jolly old saint nic coming up. then drones not just for taking out terrorists you can actually fly one in your living room. clayton is here with the coolest gadgets for your kids and teenagers this holiday. this holiday, share everything.

on the fiscal cliff and we've only got a few weeks left because christmas break is in there and so congress has to deal with this. they'll go away for christmas and speculation, are they going to come back after christmas? they don't usually, but may have to because speaker boehner said yesterday, it looks like the president is trying it slow walk this whole negotiation until the end. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wasted another week. a lot of things are possible to put the revenue the president seeks on the table, but none of it's going to be impossib impossible. the president insists on his position, insists on my way or the highway. that's not the way to get to an agreement i figure is important for the american people and very important for our economy. >> clayton: and it looks like, as governor huckabee was talking about, talked in general terms about this, democrats are in the driving seat, right? the president won the reelection, the polls are

to pass a deficit reduction package that's balanced and allows for economic growth and job creation is to put our economy on a sustainable fiscal path. which again, in itself produces positive economic benefits and growth and jobs. >> eric: that's ridiculous, what that man just said, the reason for the discussions is not to cut the deficit, it's to put our economy on a path to fiscal growth and create jobs. the only way to do it is to stop the out of control debt. you're going to bury our kids and grandkids with debt. >> ainsley: because the people who hire don't have the money, they're going to be taxed. they don't have the money to hire people. >> eric: do you realize in five years or so we're going to spend a trillion dollars just servicing the debt, just paying the interest on the money we owe china and other countries. can we do that. and president obama, senator
6:06am
obama you 2008. he thought debt was bad, out of control spending was a bad thing. listen to him. >> the problem is is that the way bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from 5 trillion dollars the first 42 presidents, 43, add 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible, it's unpatriotic. >> ainsley: saying 9 trillion dollars in debt is not responsible. do you know what the national debt is now? 16.4 trillion almost double. >> clayton: he blamed
6:07am
president bush all my his lonesome, but president obama you put 5 trillion in your debt and on the way to 10 trillion. and you want to talk about unpatriotic and dangerous. >> clayton: both parties don't cut government. neither cut government since the 1950's and when are we going to get serious about cutting things that we don't need so we can actually stop spending like this, you know what cuts government? >> the fiscal cliff. because they have to. it is in writing, it's a law that if they don't get a deal together, we go over the cliff and 1.2 trillion dollars, 600 billion out of spending and 600 billion in taxes and force-- >> i remember when i was in school, this is just like a year ago, really, no, quite a while ago. i remember talking in school about us being in debt and it was like reaching a trillion dollars and the teacher asked us to wrap our hands around this idea of a trillion dollars. now, we're seeing 16 trillion
6:08am
dollars. i can't wrap my head around a trillion to try to-- >> and then jay carney saying that's not the focus getting us out of debt and i use my dad as a reference to the first hour of the show. like my dad handing me a credit card going off to college, you know what just put whatever you want on there, keep spending, that's not our focus. >> clayton: we're not going to pay for it. >> part of the deal president obama of brought to john boehner, let's reof move the debt ceiling and take the limit on the credit cards. >> ainsley: let me tell you dad said this is emergency only and one time i treated my friends to the restaurant to dinner. and dad called me, you owe me $35 and cents. >> you went over the parental cliff. >> clayton: now we've got headlines. >> ainsley: headlines for you, a fox news alert. a huge blow to al-qaeda. one of their top officials has reportedly been killed.

>> welcome back. forget just taxing the rich, former dnc chairman howard dean says taxes should go up for everybody in recent interview the democrat offered his take on the fiscal cliff debate, saying, quote, we're
6:16am
the not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board to go back to what bill clinton had and his taxes. but will raising taxes solve our economic woes? let's ask mr. steven moore, writer for the with a wall street journal. i heard that quote and howard dean, dr. dean is one of the most liberal on the planet and saying, and i thought about that a little bit. does he mean everyone's taxes have to go up, including people who don't pay taxes now? >> a great question, because as you know, eric, about 40% of americans who file tax returns now don't pay any income tax, but i also saw that clip live when he said it and kind of mouth open, i was kind of shocked, but he's at least being an honest liberal here. one of the things about this fiscal cliff debate that bothers me, even if we raise taxes on the top two or three% and the president may reveil.
6:17am
then you go into 2013 and i heard the discussion on the debt which was fantastic. even if we do the tax increases on the rich they're not going to raise that much money and not that many people that make over 400 $500,000 a year and that means if the liberals want a fund these new programs and they want to bring this trillion dollar debt down. you know where they have to go, eric, who are they going to have to tax. they're f are not going to be w on the very rich, 1 or 2%, they're going to go after the middle class, at least howard dean was being honest. >> clayton: people watch fox and other networks with a different perspective on taxes and what not. >> eric: the reality is, we have a spending problem, steve. how much money we're actually taxing, tax revenues are going up. >> they have to. >> eric: it's a spending issue. if we're putting a trillion dollars into the deficit you can't fix that with taxes. >> no, you sure can't. eric, when i first came to washington, which was about 25 years ago, we barely had a
6:18am
trillion dollar budget and here we are, 25 years later and we're closing in on a 4 trillion dollar budget and that under democrats and republicans as well and there haven't been serious cuts in spending in this town in at least 10 or 15 years and i'm kind of frustrated that neither party is really serious about getting these spending programs under control. i mean, we have been-- you look at entitlement programs and president obama and a lot of democrats say we can't cut medicare, social security, medicaid. and that's half the budget there. of course, we're spending 600, 700 billion dollars a year just to pay the interest on the debt. just on the interest. so you don't get any return on that. one last point, if we stay on the course we're on over the next ten years, do you know the biggest single expend did your item in the budget? >> i do, servicing the national debt. >> almost a trillion dollars a year to pay for our past fiscal sins. >> eric: i only have a half
6:19am
minute or so. is there any case in american history where raises taxes worked to stimulate the economy? >> i don't think so. a lot of experiences by the way, in the 60's under john f. kennedy, a democrat, in the 80's under a reagan when we cut tax rates the revenues went up, you know that, when we cut the tax rate. >> eric: i do, but i wanted to hear from steve moore, thank you very much. >> great to be with you, sir, have a great weekend. >> eric: he's meant to bring joy, but this big santa is stirring up controversy instead. and the dare program is supposed to be teaching kids about the dangers of drugs, but they won't be talking pot anymore. why? it will just make kids want to smoke it more. is that true? i think it is, by the way. we'll be right back. ♪ initiated.

this week, you saw the big crowd. what impact will it have on youngsters? the well-known anti-drug program d.a.r.e. announced they will no longer teach fifth and sixth graders about marijuana use unless asked about it. say it's not age appropriate. really? here advisor, student against destructive decisions steven wallace and the alliance, gabriel. nice to see you. >> good morning. >> clayton: steven, start with you, you hear about d.a.r.e. in the educating fifth and sixth graders about this. good move or bad move. >> let's face if, marijuana use it on the rise among young people. a 30-year high among 12th graders, 10-year high among 8th graders and that dialog is incredit mri important bending the curve on risk. and let's put some of the
6:25am
statistics on the screen. 39.9% of students had used marijuana one or more times during their life. 8% of students have tried marijuana the first time before the age of 13 years old. gabriel, doesn't it seem like a smart move to get these kids educated early rather than waiting? >> keep in mind that the d.a.r.e. program is going to continue to educate high schoolers about marijuana not removed that part of their curriculum. this is a smart move. anytime you hear d.a.r.e. say they're following the research, d.a.r.e. had not followed the research and not worked and shown in the evidence for a great deal of time. i'm a graduate of the d.a.r.e. program actually and in 6th grade i won the "just say no" essay contest. and the kids in my class had never seen the drugs or heard of them and introduced to them by the officers. and i think there are a lot of prevention and approaches
6:26am
made, but they should be evidence-based and follow what we know works and i think it's a good step for d.a.r.e. >> clayton: steven, this is interesting and on the one hand gabriel didn't know about the drugs until suddenly the d.a.r.e. automotives shows them and gets interested in them. and isn't that what happens with kids? the bottom line, we have to wait or do it early? >> we know that risk behaviors are trending younger and younger, a spike of drinking between 6th and 7th grade and spike of drugs between 8th and 9th grade and all of my work at saad, the evidence that shows at the end of the day it's the conference between the young person and a peer or a young person and caring adult and to think that they're not aware of marijuana is kind of crazy and to suggest that it's going to incite marijuana use reminds me of the belief if we talk to kids about suicide they are he' going to try to kill themselves. >> clayton: steven brings up a great point. it's about conversation, if
6:27am
the parents had only talked to kids before they did x, y and z, it might not have happened. >> maybe it's the way that the conversation is happening and not ignoring it altogether. >> steven is making an excellent point, and one that we believe in. and accounts for the fact at that young people are going to experiment and across the range of ages and incredibly important that young people have a trusting relationship with adults. the problem with the d.a.r.e. program is that they-- many of the d.a.r.e. officers present misinformation that deteriorate the relationship between the young people and authority and when a d.a.r.e. officer tells a young person if they try marijuana they'll go on and try harder drugs, that's simply not the case and when young people discover that they've been lied to, that's not, that's not good. it's not good for young people and it's not good for the adults in their life for trying to ensure that the young people make safe and smart decisions so we need a reality based approach for tactful fact that we want to pro he motor abstinence and
